    I was thinking I'd just start a thread like this and anytime anyone catches a star wars reference (or lucas reference) on one of their favorite TV shows, they can post here.

    This was spawned by the recent SW Insider article about Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BtVS) and Star Wars. Since I love both, I've been quite aware of the references the Buffy writers make to our films.

    In fact, there was a great one on Tuesday night's episode "Showtime":

    Andrew: I'm bored. Like, Episode I bored.

    Toss up your faves or any new ones you catch

    :)

    Anyone see the Powerpuff Girls episode called "Boogie Frights"? Lots of starwars references, all the way to the girls flying up in space to destroy a giant disco ball that blocked the sun. Its great!

    I was watching the Simpsons last night (which has tons of Star Wars references BTW) and it was the episode where Homer got cursed by a gypsy. Anyway, he had to find a Leprechaun to counter the curse that the gypsy put on him but the Leprechaun fell in love with the gypsy and they got married. Yoda was the one who married em. It was pretty funny.

    Buffy on Tuesday night. Andrew said "I'm bored, Episode 1 bored"

    and later when Willow was trying to do a protection spell and it wasn't working, he yelled "Deflector shields up!"

    Did anyone catch the new Muppet xmas special that was on in december? It was "its a wonderful life" but with Kermit wishing he was never born. Anyway, Kermit keeps telling the angel to grant his wish, so the angel (david arquette) says "fine." and the ground goes all smokey and the sky turns black and he says "welcome to the world in which you were never born." Then this green head pops up from the smoke, obviously Yoda from behind!! He says to the angel "No, not ready is he!"
    "Oops," says the Angel, "wrong world."

    Just saw this on the internet

    "
    Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban & Star Wars 7-9: UK comedy actor Timothy Spall ("Nicholas Nickleby") has apparently been cast as Peter 'Wormtail' Pettigrew in the third film of the Potter books. The fifth book has finally been given a June 21st release date in the United States, Britain, Canada and Australia - and will be a good fraction longer than the fourth (an extra 25% or so thicker). Meanwhile, George Lucas is driving his fans nuts after a quote on Fox News indicated he might be doing another "Star Wars" trilogy (this time a sequel to the original ones) after all - "Essentially, Peter [Jackson] is making three three-hour movies from one book. And I'm making nine two-hour movies from one book". Naturally this simple quote has lead to Internet hysteria as SW fans flood the chatboards, and shows no sign of slowing down. Thanks to 'Jim', 'DJ Dave', 'Robert', 'Dominique', 'joliefemme', 'Zaps', 'djdave', 'Charles', 'Cap'n Howdy', 'Jaamati', 'Dust Bunny', 'Alex', 'Nick', 'Phil', 'Richard', 'LDW', 'Don', 'ScriptGrrrl', 'Geoff', 'Antoine', 'FanHalen' & 'Rob the Scot'"

    And Lucas has already denounced the rumor, calling it a misquote by the reporter.

    Not to further dilute the thread with off-topic shtuff, but even if he did make a sequel, I doubt I'd get psyched for it. Eps 1 and 2 have been mega-dissapointment. What makes anyone think sequels would be any better? =/

    Dissapointing........

    You know it's funny how GL has let slip the fact there were going to be more than just 6 films more than once. Either he's going senile or he has already planned on making another 3 SW films but has not really committed to the project until after the revenues of the first three start to dwindle. I know I have read that he would not do any more SW movies but he did not say that he would pass the baton on to someone else.

    On Topic....
    on "Suddenly Susan" tonight there were many Star Wars references.

    One of Susan co-workers downloaded a virus of the internet so they had to call a network guy in on an emergency call. The guy shows up a Darth Vader costume (Although the helmet looked nothing like Darth?s it did have heavy breathing sounds)
    He tells them the price will be high because he was at a ?Star Wars? convention.
    He tells them the price can be discounted if Vicki (played by Kathy Griffin) would accompany him to the ?Ewok Ball?

    Of course the network guy was the stereotypical Star Wars fan, a bald, middle aged
    Geek that can?t get a date. And when asked if he still lived with his mom he stated
    ?No I moved out. I live in the garage now.? (Insert laugh track)

    In the last seen we see Vicki in a white Princes Lea costume and the network guy leaving in the elevator to go to the ball.
    .

    For off topic response see new thread ?Will EPIII be the last Star Wars Movie??

    Umm, no that would be a Trekkie fan, not Star Wars. We have lives, and we do on occasion get laid, mind you she has to either wear cinnamon rolls on her head or wear some sort of metal bikini first, but it does happen.

    Yeah, I was watching that Joe Millionaire (not that I watch stuff like that, my wife does!!!!!!) And he picked this one girl because she was wearing her hair in a bun like fashion and he commented that she had the "Princess Leia" thing going.

    On Yes, Dear last night one of the characters was forced to move junk into a temp. storage facility, and there was a guy in the shed next to him with a ton of Star Wars stuff -- in fact the guy was dressed up like a Storm Trooper (but with a costume shop quality gear, not great stuff), but he acted all geeky, and one of the other characters reached down and pointed, and said "Hey, I remember I had one of these as a kid..." and the guy freaks, and yanks his arm back, "HEY! Don't....don't touch those, please...it took me forever to arrange them like the Battle of Endor..."

    The funny part was when both characters laughed at him and called him a total geek, then one left, the other went back into HIS shed and picked up some cymbals and a marching band hat and started marching in place to some music, and banging the cymbals.

    Who's the true geek? =)

    On "Spin City" Mike (M J Fox) tried to use the "jedi mind trick" on city hall reporters asking hard questions.

    "You need not ask any more questions, there is no story here"

    "Did you just try the jedi mind trick"?

    He trys it again later in the show and when it does not work for a 2ed time he says

    "It must be a bad day for the jedi mind trick"

    Tak
    still going.....

    Just watching "That 70's Show" and Donna was picking up a box that said dishes. When she opened it there was a Millennium Falcon (you know the one that holds action figures and not the ship.)

    Eric said "you could use that as a dish for chips. You could put the dip in the hyperdirve unit."

    Tonight's season finale of "Friends" had a Star Wars reference. Apparently Joey had learned a speech from Star Wars once for an audition. They never specified which speech that was but a few lines later Joey asked Ross about something being "in a galaxy far, far away."
